More people may wish to go walking in the Yorkshire Dales after a new film about one of its rangers is shown.

Lad is a production about the life of national park ranger Al Boughen and his work in the 1980s and lead actor in the film Alan Gibson - who lives close to the area - has been shadowing park ranger Ian Broadwith to learn about this role.

Director Dan Hartley describes the production as a "coming of age story" - in which a boy forms a friendship with a ranger after his father dies - "that celebrates the Yorkshire landscape and its characters".

Popular walking areas in the national park include the area containing the famous three peak challenge of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent.

The national park authority recently launched a public consultation to find out about the problems faced by walkers hiking up and down these mountains, to discover ways in which paths and facilities can be enhanced.
